1 [The Lotus Sutra] further states that if the minds of the people are impure, their land is also impure, but if their minds are pure, so is their land. There are not two lands, pure or impure in themselves. The difference lies solely in the good or evil of our minds. It is the same with a Buddha and a common mortal. While deluded, one is called a common mortal, but once enlightened, he is called a Buddha. ("On Attaining Buddhahood", MW vol. 1 p. 4) 2 Moreover, as life does not go beyond the moment, the Buddha expounded the blessings that come from a single moment of rejoicing (on hearing the Lotus Sutra). ("Questions and Answers on Embracing the Lotus Sutra", MW vol. 5 p.34) 3 Because the Han emperor believed without doubt in his retainer's words, the river froze over. And Li Kuang was able to pierce a rock with his arrow because he fully believed it to be the tiger which had killed his father. Faith is still more powerful in the world of Buddhism. ("The Real Aspect of the Gohonzon", MW vol. 1 p. 214)
